Hemp hearts have a similar look to sesame seeds, a similar taste to pine nuts, and are considered the world’s most nutritious seed. These seeds have been removed from their hard shell to create a 100% raw culinary product that tastes simply delicious. Hemp hearts act as a superfood for your health with their rich content of quality protein, omega-3, calcium, iron and last but definitely not least, antioxidants. Being the richest known source of polyunsaturated fats, hemp hearts are made up of the perfect ratio of 3:1 omega-6:omega-3. This balance of omega-3 to -6 is the harmonious proportion for optimal human nutritional benefits. They make a great addition to your diet eaten as is, used in recipes or sprinkled on top of your favourite sweet and savory foods. 

USES
Hemp hearts have a light nutty aroma that makes them a great alternative to chia seeds in smoothies for a thick and satiating consistency. They also work very well in cooking or baking, both sweet and savory, however it is best to stick with raw recipes or those at very low temperatures to hold the integrity of all the seed’s amazing nutrients. A simple use of hemp hearts is alongside an array of other nuts and seeds to sprinkle as a salad topper.
